CROSS Every Thursday ii "Kiddles' Day" Phone Now For Your Appointment 327-2673 Fire At Coleman Burns 12 Acres A fir and poplar forest fire on tile outskirts of Coleman which broke out at noon Thurs- day was under control at 6 p.m. Thursday evening. At the height of the blaze which covered up to 12 acres, fire reached the backyards of several of the homes in the new residential area of Cole- man. None of the homes was damaged. Alf Longworth, Coleman for- est superintendent, said one caterpillar bulldozer, two fire department units fr'om Cole- man and the neighboring town of Blairmore, 58 local firefight- ers including local residents and forestry personnel of the Crowsnest forest district, plus a 28-man crew of trained foresl fighters from northern Alberta fought the blaze. The forestry crew is a stand- by team for calls in the Crows- nest forest and are based in the Livingstone district. The fire was brought under control before any damage was done to homes. Fire fighting was under the direction of forest officer Dick Girardi of Coleman. The national parks branch Thursday issued a warning that fire hazards have reached ex- treme ratings in Banff, Watsr- ton Lakes and Yoho National Parks. A statement said fire permits have been cancelled in Yoho National Part in British Co- lumbia and camp fires will be permitted only in enclosed fire- places at designated camp- grounds. The rating in Kootenay Na- tional Park ranges from high to extreme. The extreme rating indicates that brush and trees are tinder dry and at a point where they are most prone to rorest fires.

A report by .U.S. engineers has already been prepared re- lative to housing, school and hospital neefls in the afeas. Fire and police departments will also be boosted. Work on the highway improvements be- tween Great Falls and the bor- der crossing into Canada at Sweelgrass has been scheduled into 1974. SHORT OF DOCTORS The site's area in Montana is reported to be short of doctors but facilities in the 12 hospitals in the area are be ade- quate. There are 1.1 physicians and .46 dentists per population in the area, compared to 1.6 physicians and .46 dentists per in the U.S. T. T The engineers' report sug- FollCC LontlllUe g.ests seven new policemen, three of them in Conrad, and 21 new firemen, with nine each in Shelby and Conrad, will be required. Control of the ABMs would be under CONAD (Continental Air using only U.S. forces, but would have control- central in the NORAD head- quarters in Colorado Springs, Colorado. NORAD is under joint U.S.-Canadian control. The 4.5-acre NORAD head- quarters area hollowed out in the granite mass of Cheyenne Mountain at Colorado Springs has space for a three-storey Funds for the ABM project must come through a bil- lion appropriations bill in Washington but no difficulty is expected. Thursday the U.S. Senate de- feated, in a 53 to 45 vote, an amendment to t h e appropria- ions bill which would have docked the establishment of :wo other sites; at Whitman Air Force Base, Missouri, and War- ren Air Force Base in Wyo- ming. The amendment would have allowed million to be di- verted to boost the two sites selected last fall in Montana and -near Grand forks, North Dakota. Ruste Looks At Needs For Offices Henry Ruste, minister of ag- riculture for the province, was a Lethbridge visitor Thursday. Main purpose of his visit was to inspect space and office re- quirements of his department in Lethbridge. Discussions were held with regional district agriculturist John Calpas and his staff. Arson Study Pincher continuing possible arson in connection with three farm fires this week which broke out within a few hours of each other in a scat- tered area around Pincher Creek. The coincidence of the firet within such a short period o time suggests a vehicle was in volved, an officer said. No ar rests have been made. Creek RCMP investigation are into ABM control building under its 50-foot vaulted ceiling. The ex- cavation is designed to with- stand direct nuclear hit. Space for expansion such as the ABM building was planned when the million tons of gran- ite was excavated for the facil- fly. The ABM project has been pushed along under the knowl- edge that Russia has boosted its missiles for long-range nu- clear warfare from 250 missiles in 1966 to its current force of missiles. This is about 100 more than the offensive missile force of the U.S. The ABMs at t h e Montana sites would have, a range of about miles and would travel to intercept and destroy enemy missiles heading for North America. The ABMs travel at a speed of m.p.h. Interception would likely be at the foot level and over the northern areas of the continent. A recent press comment from NORAD headquarters suggest- ed there was no danger Canada (at least the populated areas) would become a catchbasin for nuclear1 debris should Soviet or Chinese missiles be intercepted and destroyed over Canadian territory.

Bloods Consider Use Of Reserve For Trail Rides CAHDSTON (Staff) Neil Andrew, river valley develop- ment consultant, received unof- ficial support from Blood In- dian officials Thursday for his proposed bridle-path, trail-ride project. Official recognition of the proposal is expected to come from the Blood Tribal Adminis- tration the first week in Sep- tember. Mr. Andrew said the purpose of the meeting Thursday was to encourage the Blood Indian Ad- ministration to organize a rec- reational group that would be able to conduct a trail ride across the reserve for tourists, their own people, people :n the south Alberta region and people Gas Company Before Board In Calgary Canadian Western Natural Gas Co. Ltd. is appearing be- :ore the Public Utilities Board in Calgary today with an ap- plication requesting a public rearing into its bid to raise natural gas rates in southern Alberta. City Solicitor John Ham- mond is sitting in on the ap- jlication hearing and is to re- quest that the City of Leth- >ridge be allowed to make a submission on the bid by 2WNG when actual hearings begin. The city manager and city solicitor have been asked by council to oppose the proposed rate increase of CWNG. Some local industries have indicated they are strongly op- posed to any gas rate in- creases. Details of the CWNG pro- posed rate increase will- be mown later, after the Public Utilities Boards sets a date for :he hearings. It was expected the date would be set today. The city has been unable to prepare any brief to date be- cause it does rat know the de- tails of the CWNG request for a rate increase. Details will be released by CWNG after the hearing date is set, a company spokesman said. It is expected CWNG will ask 'or an interim rate increase until a decision is reached on ts application. CWNG: is be- ieved to be asking for the rate increase to take effect early in 1971. living adjacent to the reserve, primarily the citizens of Leth- bridge. "The reason the trail ride is proposed for pail of the Blood Indian Reserve is that it ties in to a comprehensive, bridle trail program to be known as the River Valley Corridor Rec- reation he said. "If this primary trail ride project is successful, larger and more complex trails could be established." It has been speculated that the Blood Indian group affil- iated with the bridle path pro- ject could begin to compete in the tourist trade. Package tourist trips are based on a people to people arrangement, and the Blood In- dians could set up their own operation and still be associ- ated with the over-all River Valley Corridor Recreation De- velopment. Richard Mills, an administra- tion officials for the Blood In- dians, said such a project would tie in with several plans the administration has in mind and some projects already in opera- tion on the reserve. "This could become a project in affiliation with the recently established Cross Bell dude ranch operated by Rufus Good- striker."
